Few players score a hat-trick of tries on their Rugby World Cup debut, but Jack Nowell did just that when helping England to a 60-3 win over Uruguay at the Manchester City Stadium in October 2015.
It was the sixth instance that an England team member had bagged three or more tries in the history of the tournament.
He followed Mike Harrison (1987), Josh Lewsey (2003), Chris Ashton and Mark Cueto (2011) and Nick Easter, who also achieved the feat against Uruguay (2015).
As the LV= Breakthrough Player for 2012-13, Jack had already achieved much in his burgeoning career before scoring four tries in his first eight Test matches.
Jack had been included in the Saxons squad for the first time in August 2013 and five months later joined England’s Championship squad. On his Test debut against France in Paris, he made 87 metres, the most by an England player in that game and scored his maiden try against Italy in Rome.
They featured two touchdowns in the final game of the 2015 Six Nations Championship against France and he made more clean breaks (nine) than any other player in the tournament.
Jack took his Test try total to eight in 11 games in the 15-9 over Scotland at Murrayfield in February 2016 – he had also crossed their line at Twickenham in 2015.
His ninth international try at Brisbane in June 2016 sealed a 39-28 win for England over Australia that set them on their way to their first-ever series whitewash victory Down Under.
He missed the start of the 2016/17 season after having surgery on a thumb injury and then suffered a tear in his quad that ruled him out of the four-match Old Mutual Wealth Series.
An eye-catching performance off the bench against Italy in February 2017 brought him two tries and he was narrowly denied a third because of obstruction.
Jack then had the honour of being selected in the British & Irish Lions squad for their tour of New Zealand in 2017. His third game of that tour produced two tries during an eye-catching performance against the Chiefs at Hamilton.
A cameo performance, spanning six-minutes, followed on his Lions Test debut at Wellington while Anthony Watson was undergoing a head injury assessment.
He also played off the bench in the final eight minutes of the third Test at Eden Park that finished 15-15 to ensure the series was shared.
A fracture eye socket meant Jack missed the 2017 Old Mutual Wealth Series, but he returned off the bench to score in England's 46-15 win against Italy at Rome in the opening round of the 2018 Six Nations.
Truro-born Jack studied at the college there and took a BTEC in Sport Performance and Excellence.
While coming through the Exeter Chiefs Academy, he played for Redruth and deep into 2010/11 had started at full back in every match for which he had been fit and available.
Jack was also a member of the Chiefs squad for the Premiership Sevens at Northampton in July 2010 and the finals at Bath the following month.
He had loan spells with Cornish Pirates and Plymouth before eventually making his senior debut for Exeter against the Ospreys in the Anglo-Welsh Cup in October 2012.
Jack was educated at Newlyn School and Mount’s Bay School in Penzance and first played when six at Penzance-Newlyn RFC, where his mentors were Nicky Brooks and Peter Lugg.
Just before his Lions call-up, he helped the Chiefs claim their first-ever Aviva Premiership title in May 2017 when they defeated Wasps 23-20 after extra time at Twickenham.
His representative honours during his youth included Cornwall U15-U18, South West U18 and England U17 Academies.
Jack toured Italy with Penzance-Newlyn and in 2011 went to South Africa with Truro College, but his highlight before his England U18 debut was going to Japan with his college for the Sanix World Championship.
A try-scoring man of the match on his England U18 debut against Ireland at Donnybrook in December 2010, Jack also bagged a try from full back on his second appearance against Italy in February 2011 and two against Wales match two months later.
His first was after only a minute and his second helped England to rally in exhilarating style from 27-10 adrift to achieve a 38-34 victory.
Jack scored two tries against Italy and one against Wales in his three U20 games in 2012/13, helping his team to claim the Under-20 Six Nations title.
In June 2013, he was a try-scorer when England beat Wales 23-15 at Vannes and took the World Rugby Junior World Championship crown for the first time.
